Lorraine Duplanty. Kitchen. December 10th , 2017.
When the kitchen has such a great potential for a wonderful view, it‘s a real shame to ignore it. This is a residence located in Northcote, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Its kitchen is open and spacious and it compensates for the lack of windows with a skylight, a white-based color palette and an amazing panorama window instead of a backsplash.
For a countertop that will not see heavy use, a slice of wood that features the natural contours of the tree can’t be beat. Variations in thickness and size, as well as availability, make them difficult to include in a functional kitchen. These are best suited to dining areas, bars or decorative countertops, not workhorse surfaces. The more gnarly the edge, the greater the artful feel.
Ideally, a kitchen should have lots of natural light and that usually means that sacrifices have to be made in order to accommodate large windows or that you have to find a way to design your kitchen with an open and bright decor. Multifunctional designs are always preferred in kitchens regardless of their size and style so why not have a window backsplash? It’s both a window and a backsplash and it’s exactly what a kitchen needs to look bright, spacious and inviting. Lots of architects and designers agree.
When they designed the East Malvern Residence, LSA Architects felt that a window backsplash would allow them to maintain an open and bright ambiance throughout. To emphasize that, they also chose white as the main color for the kitchen furnishings.
